Epiphone 2003 Casino Electric Guitar Antique Sunburst Finish Peerless Factory
Here we have a beautiful example of the sought after Korean Peerless Casino. It was built in 2003 at the well renowned Peerless factory in Korea. It is one of the cleanest examples we have had in of late and also a really good looking guitar with some lovely grain showing all over the body. These Peerless Casinos took over from Terada production. They like Terada, have been long discontinued now that production has been moved to China to cut costs, these excellent Peerless guitar don't come up much nowadays; they are very well thought of and becoming harder to find as their reputation grows. This one is a lovely hollowbody. It is ageing very gracefully with a deep vibrant ’65 Era Tobacco Sunburst finish, with less red than we usual see. The plastic and binding are starting to age to an off white and all the metal hardware still retains a deep shine. You feel how resonant this one is as soon as you pick it up. It plays beautifully with a medium action and the P90’s boom as soon as you plug it in. You really can’t go wrong with a hollowbody/P90 combination. There have been no breaks or repairs. It’s all original with no modifications and still has it's original pickguard. Electrically and structurally sound. Neck is dead straight truss rod checked and functioning fine, plenty of life left in the frets. It’s a real featherweight at 2.7kg. Has a few scuffs on the back, a scratch on the edge etc but very clean overall with a lovely shine to all the metal hardware. It comes with its original Epiphone hardcase, all latches working fine. I’ll let the pics tell the rest of the story, this is a beautiful old Peerless Casino. The Korean Casinos from Peerless have gained a great reputation and increasing in value. Don’t miss this one.
